This Spotlight presents a selection of publications that assess the main features, history, work and impact of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in Latin America. Selected by human rights experts at Fundar, these publications highlight a variety of Latin American experiences in which NHRIs have had a significant impact on promoting and defending human rights. The publications are useful not only in offering general knowledge about NHRIs, but also in providing readers with an in-depth understanding of the key elements and practices that have proven to be successful in the creation of NHRIs in the region, noteworthy design and operational features that have strengthened NHRIs, as well as the context in which they emerged.
